What a wonderful wonderful film!!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Bride And Prejudice  [DVD] (DVD)
What a wonderful, uplifting, funny heart-warming movie - if you love Jane Austen, musicals, chickflicks, romantic movies - just GO SEE IT!! Big screen if possible - it really deserves it!!
Aishwarya Rai has so much presence and warmth, and charm, no wonder she is such a big star.
Martin Henderson - wow - he is a better Darcy than Colin Firth, all masculine pride and stiffness, but conveys warm tenderhearted feelings so well - they are brilliant together. Also Nitin Chandra Ganatra as Kholi, the vain suitor, he is hilarious.
All the Bakshi family are great, the sisters singing "No Life Without Wife" together is wonderful, The parents are funny and real. I loved the musical numbers, only wish there were more songs.
It does justice to Jane Austen, it's actually quite faithful to the book, with a few sly nods the BBC 1995 mini-series thrown in, it's just warm wonderful fun.
